Mock draft still has Jaguars taking WR despite lower pick

The Jacksonville Jaguars offense has been cooking as of late with Christian Kirk, Zay Jones, and Evan Engram all posting career best numbers with Trevor Lawrence leading the way. Add Calvin Ridley to the mix in 2023 and the Jaguars offense is looking like it’ll be fun for many years to come.

Yet wide receiver and tight end continue to be the positions that dominate mock drafts for the Jaguars.

While the team’s recent win streak may have taken Jacksonville out of the mix for TCU receiver Quentin Johnston or Notre Dame tight end Mayer, Luke Easterling of Draft Wire still thinks receiver will be the move.

In his latest mock draft, Easterling has the Jaguars taking USC receiver Jordan Addison with the 19th pick:

The Jags could go in a couple of different directions here, but they should err on the side of helping Trevor Lawrence whenever possible. That means landing one of this year’s most explosive pass-catchers in Addison, who makes up for his lack of ideal size with precise routes, separation, and ability to create big plays after the catch.

Addison was the Fred Biletnikoff Award winner at Pittsburgh before transferring to USC.

In the second round, Easterling has the Jaguars slated to take Michigan cornerback DJ Turner.
